[FROM THE TEXT]
Have you ever seen huge explosions of fireworks at a festival? Have you watched a famous Hollywood director shutting down the streets of your hometown to make a new film? Even if you have not seen events like these, someone somewhere has, and has probably written about them in an “eyewitness account.” An eyewitness account is a narrative, or story, that tells about something interesting, unusual, or exciting that the writer has seen. It gives facts and details about an event so that the reader can picture it clearly. Reading an eyewitness account can put you at the scene of the action. You can also write your own eyewitness account that will pull a reader into your world. Writing an eyewitness account is one of the best ways you and other writers can share what you have seen with the rest of the world.
